The annual TEST tornado warning will be today, Wednesday May 4, 2011, at 11:15 AM CDT,
10:15 Mountain, as part of severe summer weather awareness week. This will be for all
counties in North Dakota. Emergency Alert System (EAS) codes will be sent so that weather
radios will alarm, and TV and radio broacasts may be interrupted. Again, this is only a TEST,
to test communications systems. In some communities outdoor warning sirens may sound.
Some schools will be conducting their tornado drills to coincide with this test.
